Memphis Depay netted an excellent goal as Lyon earned a much-needed 2-0 victory over Metz.

Lyon went into the game in 17th spot in Ligue 1 and without a victory since the second week of the season.

New boss Rudi Garcia handed Memphis Depay the captains armband for the clash and the Dutch international did not disappoint.

In the 28th minute, Memphis opened the scoring with an excellent solo goal which saw him skip past three defenders before slotting into the bottom corner.

Moussa Dembele then made it 2-0 five minutes later from the penalty spot and that is the way the match ended.

Lyon rises up five places to 12th in the league thanks to the victory.
